RainTurtle *steps up to the podium, and clears throat* Ehem
RainTurtle good evening/afternoon, ladies and gentlemen
Aphanas tips hat to Rain…
RainTurtle Today’s seminar is on the topic of psionic and related methods of moderating and eliminating pain, without recourse to drugs
RainTurtle The reason for the sudden-ness of the scheduling of this seminar is very simple.
RainTurtle Some of the methods we will discuss today take a bit of practice, to be comfy enough to trust them
RainTurtle That isn’t to say that they can’t or don’t work on the first try, because they _do_ and _have done so_ for many people…but if you are sitting there in the dentist’s office wondering if it is going to work, your body’s going to be tense, and your belly will probably be complaining about the French toast you had for breakfast (and alerting you to the probability that it would be coming back the way it came in….)

RainTurtle Topic for this evening is “telepathic projection”
RainTurtle Are there any questions before we start?
Jael I have a couple questions, but I suspect you may answer them as you go.
RainTurtle Jael: go ahead…
Jael (sorry…not written out already)
RainTurtle (It’s a very broad topic, so if there are specific questions, might as well “hear” them at the start 🙂 )
Jael This may be part of the definition, but my question is if telepathic projection is used in things like sermons and singing (similar to empathetic projection).
RainTurtle It can be, but is not always used in those situations
Jael okay. thanks
RainTurtle no problem 🙂
RainTurtle In a nutshell, telepathic projection includes any data psionically Sent from one mind to another

<RainTurtle> Good evening, ladies and gentlemen
<Kid_Energy> good evening Rain
<RainTurtle> The topic of tonight’s seminar is a Shield format
<RainTurtle> As usual…if you aren’t here for a seminar in rudimentary psionics, you might want to leave before things get too weird
<RainTurtle> It will come as no surprise that “Marshmallow” is a slang expression for the variety of shield format slated for discussion, tonight
<RainTurtle> I’m sure it has many other equally descriptive monikers
<RainTurtle> This format is very simple, which is one of its main strengths
<RainTurtle> It is also a bit on the “claustrophobic” side, and so might not be the best choice for people who do not like feeling confined….

<RainTurtle> Good evening, all. The topic for this evening’s seminar is “Empathy”
<RainTurtle> If you are not here for a class on rudimentary psionics, you might find that you’ve mistyped the chatroom name….This is not a gaming room, and we are not about to start an RPG
<RainTurtle> There are two basic meanings for the word “empathy”, and several variants within each.
<RainTurtle> The first is a psychological phenomenon, reacting to the expressed or assumed situation of another person, “feeling for them”,….very like “sympathy” in rough terms
<RainTurtle> Not being a Psychologist, I am not going to be lecturing on Psychological Empathy, tonight….
<RainTurtle> Instead, we come to the second meaning: “the telepathic perception of another person’s emotions”. Depending on the variant of the definition which you happen to favour, this may also extend to influencing the emotions of other people, in addition to sensing same

Mistyck Welcome to the class on Wards and Warding
Mistyck Wards have been used by many cultures over history. Although each culture/tradition varies in what the wards are made from, their purpose is usually the same.
Mistyck To keep out unwanted entities and things from an area.
Mistyck For those who are familiar with Katherine Kurtz’ Deryni series, you know that she made the wards as black and white dice-like cubes.
Mistyck However, Wards can other things as well. I have seen Wards being made using candles or even pure psi.

<Dan> OK – A few quick “administrative” notes.
<Dan> 1) nobody is required to attempt to put up one of these shields… You’re welcome to sit in and observe/ask questions.
<Dan> 2) If you want to put one of these things up, Rain has volunteered to observe, and let you know how you’re doing.
* RainTurtle waves
<Dan> 3) Generally I like questions (they tell me where I’m being less than clear)… But, If I say take it offline (after class that means) hold THAT question until the seminar is over.
<Dan> 4) Most questions are probably best posed in open channel, but I will accept PM questions.
<Dan> Any questions before we get started?
Note: This is a discussion rather than a how-to.

<RainTurtle> Good evening, ladies and gentlemen
<RainTurtle> Tonight, we are going to discuss teleportation. Any of you here to learn how to actually do it, are in for a severe disappointment and might as well leave now
<RainTurtle> Tonight’s topic came about on a lark….I was thinking about what to run a seminar on, and decided to take a “skill” out of an rpg rulebook at random….just my luck, teleportation is the one that came up
<RainTurtle> I expect that you’ve heard of teleportation, roughly defined as a really fast way to get from Point A to Point Z without bothering to go through Points B through Y?
<RainTurtle> It may surprise some of you to learn that teleportation is actually done in the real world.
<RainTurtle> Some scientists in various labs around the world have been playing with the teleportation of photons, and some slightly larger particles, for the better part of a decade.

<Mistyck> Welcome to the Remote Viewing Seminar
<Mistyck> as most of you know, Remote Viewing means “seeing things from a distance” and a way to use telepathy and clairvoyance
<Mistyck> The most well known and successful uses of RV were by the US and Soviet military and intelligence agencies such as KGB and CIA. However, the British made extensive use of RV against the Germans in WW II
<Mistyck> RV in military terms usually deals with being assigned random coordinates as targets. These coordinates are random number/letters assigned by someone who forwards them to the “Controller” to pass on to the “Viewer”
<Mistyck> ok, everyone who’s going to participate, please write at the top of your paper today’s date, time, the conditions outside.

<Aphanas> Hi, Rain, Andy.
<Andy_Hock> Well, I was planning an actual lesson, but if this is our group, we’ll probably do more of a discussion on our shielding experiences and preferences.
<RainTurtle> Newbies are conspicuous by their absence
<Andy_Hock> Newbies only want to learn advanced stuff, usually . . . .
<Aphanas> If you had offered a psionic teleportation lesson, they’d be here in droves…
<RainTurtle> Quite so
<Andy_Hock> Or . . . phasing! That’d set an attendance record!
<RainTurtle> Yep, that’d test the limits of chatroom population
Date: September 9, 2003 (Tuesday)
* Andy_Hock waves to Palamedes.
<RainTurtle> For the record, Catless Lurkers are welcome in the discussion….no need to be silent
* Aphanas has a cat, but she is currently more interested in his tuna than the subject of the evening…
<RainTurtle> Tonight’s seminar topic is “Constructs as Cat-Toys”, or “the Cat as Construct Quality-Control Officer”
<Andy_Hock> Thanks, Rain.
<RainTurtle> If you are not here to discuss construct cat-toys, you might want to be elsewhere…
<RainTurtle> Presumably all of you have some experience with basic constructs, yes?
<Andy_Hock> Yes, Rain.
<RainTurtle> Most cats are Sensitive to psionic effects, and notice constructs.
